It has been a wonderfully busy and successful year at Wycombe High School. Our students have achieved so much this year, in so many ways. With over 80 clubs and societies to choose from each term and around 72 educational visits per year, there is a lot of great news to celebrate! Do follow us on Twitter @WycombeHighSch to pick up real time reporting on life at Wycombe High. We have a fantastic student-Led News Crew who are honing their journalistic skills writing news items for our website, Twitter and E-Highflyer. Lend them your support and follow us!
Today we send our musicians off on their biennial Music Tour. This year they are making Music in France, performing in Cepoy, Montargis and in Orleans Cathedral. We wish them well and know it will be an amazing experience. Follow @WycHighMusic for live updates throughout the tour, which runs from 14 to 18 July.
Our School values of infectious joy, limitless ambition, insatiable curiosity, and generous spirit, shine through in the extraordinary range of extracurricular provision we offer. It enables our students to discover their talents, interests, and passions, whilst simultaneously developing organisational, leadership and team working skills. Such activities help our students to develop breadth, embrace diverse experiences and perspectives and become prepared for their adult life beyond school.
In this spirit, we have enjoyed (or are about to) over the last few weeks, events such as Year 10 Robotics Coding, Year 7 Mathematics Day, Taking Maths Further Day, Latin and Classics Drama Competition, English Schools Athletics competitions, Year 10/12 Adventure Weekend, ball-girling at The Boodles Tennis, Arts and Sports Awards Evenings, Year 9 Street Fair, Charity Village, and a magnificent Sports Day. Even with this small selection of activities from the year, you can see why we have such tremendous joy and spirit, such a strong sense of community and family, and such strong values.
We truly are a school that:
Looks beyond the traditional grammar school
Looks beyond league tables and exam results
Looks beyond stereotypes and conventions.
Looks beyond a world where futures are fixed
At Wycombe High, we look beyond.
Thank you for your unwavering support this academic year and have a very enjoyable Summer break. I look forward to welcoming back our wonderful students in September for another great year at Wycombe High. Please complete our Parent Survey. We need everyone to complete it to celebrate our successes and shape our future plans: PARENT SURVEY
